Evan Meek optioned to AAA

#pirates option Meek to Indianapolis

No corresponding move has yet been made, but one would have to assume that it will be either Doug Slaten, Daniel Moskos, or Daniel McCutchen, and most likely in that order.

Evan Meek has struggled so far this year with a 5.59 ERA over 9 2/3 innings.

Slaten has a 0.69 ERA over 13 innings for Indianapolis with eight strikeouts and three walks. Moskos has a 3.68 ERA over 7 1/3 innings with six strikeouts and seven walks. McCutchen, who hasn’t been with the club over the past few days due to the birth of his child, has a 3.52 ERA in 15 1/3 innings with 12 strikeouts and four walks.

My money is on Slaten.
